I saw Adamant Barrage's FFVII game and I thought this would be a great concept to bring here. After all, FFIX is the favorite FF game of many of the regular Shriners and we could have some good times with this game.

The rules are as follows. Questions are given in multiple-choice A-D with values ranging from 100 to one million gil. Questions start very easy and get progressively harder. Once you reach 1000, you keep it no matter what and the same goes for 32000. If you answer a question and get it wrong, you're out and you drop back to that dollar amount.

Entrants are determined by the fastest finger --- putting four choices in order. First to put it in order wins. After that, that person is in the hot seat. Very important: <font color="red">Only the person in the hot seat can answer questions</font>. If you blurt out a correct answer and you're not in the hot seat, you will be disqualified from all future games and the contestant can use the answer you posted if they so choose.

Because I want you to win as much as possible, you have these lifelines to help you

50:50 --- The simplest. This eliminates two wrong answers.

Ask the Audience --- When you ask the audience, anyone reading the thread may post the answer they think is correct, even if they're not in the Hot Seat. <font color="red">This is the only time you may answer unless it's either a Fastest Finger or you're in the Hot Seat</font>. --- Agent0042: This lifeline has been scrapped, it is no longer available.

Switch the Question --- Replace the current question with one of generally equal difficulty level, but possibly about different subject matter. This lifeline replaced Ask the Audience.

Phone a Friend --- Name any Shriner you wish, except myself or a member of the current Experts' Panel. I will send a private message to them and ask them what their answer is. If they don't respond within 24 hours, you lose the lifeline. If they choose not to participate, you lose the lifeline. So it would be good to clear it in advance.

I am also tossing in three additional lifelines to make things fun:

Ask Google/GameFAQs/FFShrine Main Site/etc. --- Normally by participating, you agree that you are not cheating by looking up the answers. If you use this lifeline, you may use any such online resource to help you. If you are using this lifeline, just go ahead and use it and then tell me that you're using it when you answer the question. This lifeline kicks in at 8000 gil.

Double Dip --- This is lifted from Super Millionaire. You may give two answers to the question. Used in combination with 50:50, this can guarantee a correct answer. Again, if you use this, just go ahead and put two answers and say that you're using it. This kicks in at 16000 gil.

Ask the Experts --- This lifeline kicks in at 64000 gil. Also lifted from Super Millionaire. A panel of three experts will be selected and you can go to them for an answer. If they don't respond within 24 hours, you lose any that don't respond.

Once you're in the Hot Seat, you have up to 48 hours to respond to the question. Don't abuse this privilege though --- if you make us wait two days, then the time you have next time to answer will decrease.

So, if everybody's ready, then it's time for our first fastest finger question:

Place these characters in order from the time they first become playable in battle:

A.) Eiko
B.) Beatrix
C.) Blank
D.) Steiner

P.S.: I will be posting a leaderboard of people's scores, to add incentive to go for the big values.

P.P.S.: If you'd like to be an "expert," send me a PM.

Angel Kratos
10-18-2006, 07:27 PM

10-18-2006, 07:32 PM
Thank you Angel Kratos. That is the correct order! Well, you know the rules, you know the lifelines, so if you're ready, let's play Who Wants to Be a Final Fantasy Millionaire!

For $100:

Which of the following is the very first thing said by the main character Zidane:

A.) "Who goes there?"
B.) "Sure is dark..."
C.) "It's me, Zidane!"
D.) "What a peaceful night."

Angel Kratos
10-18-2006, 08:04 PM
Sure is dark...

10-18-2006, 08:07 PM

Your next question, for 200 gil:

Which of the following is not an actual location within the game:

A.) Lindblum
B.) Fossil Roo
C.) Ivalice
D.) Esto Gaza

Angel Kratos
10-18-2006, 08:08 PM

10-18-2006, 08:12 PM
Correct! Very good. Ivalice is the setting for the upcoming Final Fantasy XII an was in Tactics Advance I believe.

Now playing for 300 gil:

If you were Zidane and you were heading into a cafe in Lindblum, which of the following would you most likely order?

A.) Today's Special
B.) Beer
C.) The "Silly Special"
D.) The "Stupid Special"

Angel Kratos
10-18-2006, 08:20 PM
I will go 50 : 50

10-18-2006, 08:28 PM
Okay, let's randomly eliminate two wrong answers, leaving one wrong answer and the correct answer.

The random elimination has eliminated the following --- A.) and B.)

You are left with:

C.) The "Silly Special"
D.) The "Stupid Special"

Angel Kratos
10-18-2006, 08:30 PM
Silly special.

10-18-2006, 08:34 PM
Ooh, ouch. No, I'm sorry, Angel, but Zidane actually asked for the "stupid special."

(sigh) It really hurts when someone is eliminated that early, but on we go. So contestants, if you're ready, here's your next fastest finger question:

Sort the following mandatory Active Time Events in which they occur, starting with the earliest:

A.) Eiko's Kitchen
B.) Queen Brahne's Steiner
C.) The Forest Keeper
D.) Deep Anger

P.S.: If you have already played, you cannot play again unless nobody responds with the correct answer to the Fastest Finger within 36 hours.

dark phoenix
10-18-2006, 08:35 PM

10-18-2006, 08:37 PM
Sorry, dark phoenix, that is not correct. I'm afraid you're ineligible till the next Fastest Finger.

10-18-2006, 09:34 PM
B, C, D, A

10-18-2006, 10:24 PM

10-18-2006, 11:45 PM
Sorry, Enya, but that's not the right answer either.

10-19-2006, 04:35 AM

This is an excellent idea!

10-19-2006, 04:53 AM
Man, really sorry, ROKI, but that's not the right answer either. Contenders, come forward and play Fastest Finger! If someone else has answered --- don't worry, you might have the right answer and they might not.

Hint --- The "Deep Anger" Active Time Event involves Kuja.

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 10:03 AM
Stab in the dark


10-19-2006, 10:35 AM
Hey irvine.rocky, that was really a good stab in the dark because you're actually absolutely right. C. The Forest Keeper (very first ATE), B. Queen Brahne's Steiner (Lindblum), A. Eiko's Kitchen (just after you meet her) and D. Deep Anger (snap to Kuja during scenes at Lindblum Grand Castle.)

You know about the rules. You know about the lifelines. So if you're ready, let's play Who Wants to Be a Final Fantasy IX Millionaire!

For 100 gil, which of the following is the vocal piece played during the closing credits. Is it:

A.) Eyes on Me
B.) Melodies of Love
C.) Melodies of Life
D.) Suteki da Ne

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 10:40 AM
lmao - really!!

(nice pic btw - very proffesional) - im not really that into FFIX so im not expecting to be in that long!!

hmm, this one seems to be a mix between B & C.

I know Eyes on me is FF8 and Suteki De Na is X (both are class songs)

im gonna go for C - no use in using a lifeline yet. (is this one supposed to be easy cause im struggling!!)

10-19-2006, 10:47 AM
Yeah, it's supposed to be easy, although all questions could be asked at any time with the assumption that you've played through the entire game at least once. C. is indeed the correct answer, with B.) being a trick.

Let's continue for 200 gil. Regent Cid Fabool first appears in this game as an:

A.) Oglop
B.) Human
C.) Frog
D.) Genome

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 10:50 AM
an oglop - that looks like a frog

(A) - i can remember that one (god how stupid would i look if i am wrong now!!)

10-19-2006, 12:27 PM
An Oglop is, of course, correct. Turns into a frog later, of course.

On we go, now for 300 gil. The black mages in the Black Mage Village call their chocobo:

A.) Boko
B.) Billy Conway
C.) Desmond Greenwald
D.) Bobby Corwen

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 12:30 PM gonna have to take an ask the audience on that one please....

Be Sensible please audience!!

10-19-2006, 12:33 PM
Ooh, all right. Ask the Audience is now in play. Audience, using your keyboards, please vote A., B., C. or D. now. Audience --- please vote only A, B, C or D, please do not provide any sort of explanation along with your answer. You have up to 24 horus to get your vote in. irvine.rocky --- if at any time you are satisfied with the way the vote has gone so far, you may lock in an answer at any time. You may also choose to use another lifeline at any time during the audience vote.

To irvine.rocky --- when deciding, make sure to consider several factors --- I.E., the overall number of votes, the length of time the person posting has been on the boards, post count and what you know of how knowledgable that particular person is or isn't on Final Fantasy IX.

10-19-2006, 12:57 PM

10-19-2006, 12:59 PM
Vote D.) Bobby Corwen

10-19-2006, 12:59 PM

10-19-2006, 01:00 PM

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 01:07 PM
Vote D.) Bobby Corwen

I cant really be bothered to wait until tommorow, so im gonna, go with enya's Bobby Corwen. If enya has deliberatly put something else in then well done!

Nobody wants to live forever so D - Bobby Corwen

10-19-2006, 01:21 PM
:) Smart thinking, trusting Enya. That's an advantage of this lifeline in the message board version --- you know exactly who's voting for what. Enya has not led you wrong --- the chocobo is in fact Bobby Corwen.

We move on to a 500 gil question. Which of the following characters is not at all involved in the slew of love letters sequence? Is it:

A.) Baku
B.) Eiko
C.) Steiner
D.) Amarant

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 01:29 PM
i think the answer is D amarant.

although im torn between him and Baku.

(I know that eiko and steiner is) I dunno, i have 50/50 chance so and amarant just doesnt really seem that tyoe anyway....IN FACT - im gonna go home and play FFIX again because i havent played it in ages (saving my last lifeline)


10-19-2006, 01:34 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

You're right, it was Amarant. Amarant is not in that scene. Baku is the spoiler of the entire scene --- he shows up and starts sneezing and they complain that he ruined the romantic scene.

You've made it to the 1,000 gil question. Keep in mind that this is an important question because if you answer this correctly, you can't leave with less than 1,000 gil. But if you answer this incorrectly, you leave with nothing. So, for 1,000 gil, which of the following black magic spells can Vivi never cast? Is that:

A.) Doomsday
B.) Ultima
C.) Osmose
D.) Water

BTW, if anyone's interested, I still need Shriners for the Experts' Panel. This is for the Ask the Experts lifeline. Once you're on the panel, you become ineligible for Ask the Audience and Phone a Friend while you're on the panel, so consider carefully before joining.

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 01:43 PM
can i have 50/50 please

10-19-2006, 04:25 PM
BTW, if anyone's interested, I still need Shriners for the [b]Experts' Panel. This is for the Ask the Experts lifeline. Once you're on the panel, you become ineligible for Ask the Audience and Phone a Friend while you're on the panel, so consider carefully before joining.

Im interested as i visit the forums daily

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 04:30 PM

yeah, but tbf - you give crap advice!!

10-19-2006, 04:37 PM
Okay, 50:50 is active. Computer, please take away two wrong answers, leaving one wrong answer and the correct answer... A.) and C.) have been eliminated. You're left with the following two choices:

B.) Ultima
D.) Water

Mr Jack
10-19-2006, 04:41 PM
B) Ultima

10-19-2006, 06:24 PM
Agent this is a good idea.

Also, I wouldn't mind being on the Expert's Panel but if someone with more FFIX knowledge steps up, then choose them of course.
But just PM or let me know in here the final decision.

10-19-2006, 08:44 PM
Okay, you know what? Anyone that wants to be on the panel, just send me a PM.

<font color=red>Correct</font> --- Ultima is Kuja's special spell in this game.

Welcome back, everyone. We're here with irvine.rocky1. He's doing pretty well so far. He's won 1,000 gil and he's going for 2,000. Now irvine, that money is yours to keep, no matter what. You still have one lifeline left --- Phone a Friend and there'll be more lifelines kicking in if you reach the higher gil values. So let's continue with Who Wants to Be a Final Fantasy IX Millionaire! For 2,000 gil, which of the following is an actual Pluto knight? Is it:

A.) Haagen
B.) Smitzen
C.) Jamal
D.) Merzecht

Hex Omega
10-19-2006, 09:01 PM
wow, i havent seen this til now. this is very clever. gj Agent.

10-19-2006, 09:32 PM
haha this is pretty cool. Who else ya got lined up as a contestant?

10-19-2006, 10:11 PM
Anyone can play by answering a fastest finger question, as far as I'm aware.

10-19-2006, 10:57 PM
Ceid is correct. You qualify by being the first person to get the Fastest Finger correct when there's nobody in the "Hot Seat." Currently, irvine.rocky1 is in the Hot Seat. There's a detailed and somewhat long-winded explanation on the first post in the thread.

10-20-2006, 04:32 AM
yeah, but tbf - you give crap advice!!

Dont expect me to be perfect! And any way its the player's choice of who shiner he wants ;). But lets not turn this into a chatting :)

10-20-2006, 04:40 AM
Actually, just for the record, the Experts' Panel is not the player's choice. That's the Phone a Friend. I determine the Experts' Panel and in order to be on it, you have to send me a PM first.

Mr Jack
10-20-2006, 09:28 AM
Okay, you know what? Anyone that wants to be on the panel, just send me a PM.

<font color=red>Correct</font> --- Ultima is Kuja's special spell in this game.

i guess ill use my phone a friend (shouldnt it be called pm a friend?!?)

Errr...none of my mates actually like 9, so ill go for enya, seeing of how he/she gave top notch advice last time!

---btw - im not expecting to be in that much longer...

10-20-2006, 11:08 AM
Okay. If my memory serves right, I'm determined it is:

A) Haagen

Mr Jack
10-20-2006, 12:02 PM
ok then...A it is...thankyou

(dont worry if its wrong...i still got a grand!! :D

10-20-2006, 01:26 PM
Well, normally I'm supposed to PM the Phone a Friend, but I guess it doesn't matter since Enya was reading the thread anyway.

<font color=red>Correct</font> --- Haagen is an actual Pluto Knight, paired with Weimar. The rest of those are all fake names I made up (well, okay, Jamal's actual name) to sound kinda like Pluto Knight names.

Okay, you've won 2,000 gil, you're now playing for 4,000 gil. You don't currently have any lifelines, but remember that if you reach the 8,000 gil mark, some of the fabulous new lifelines start kicking in. But if you answer at any time and get it wrong, your winnings drop back to 1,000 gil. So let's continue.

Which of the following is not an available option when Zidane tells Freya that it's terrible and from the looks of things, he doesn't think the King made it.

A.) Talk to her
B.) ... ... ...
C.) I wonder if Dagger's alright
D.) Leave her alone

Mr Jack
10-20-2006, 01:33 PM
ok...well ive thought it through....And there is just no way i can know that without having the game in front of me or having any lifelines so....

Im gonna take the money george!

10-20-2006, 03:08 PM
Okay. Congratulations, irvine.rocky1, you've won 2,000 gil on Who Wants to Be a Final Fantasy IX Millionaire. Your name will be added to the list of previous players.

Let's find out what the correct answer is. Turns out it was:

B.) ... ... ... --- all of the others are responses you can use, but "... ... ..." would really be more of a Squall-ish statement.

Well, for someone who hadn't played FFIX recently, irvine.rocky1 did pretty well. But now it's time to put someone else in the Hot Seat. So if everyone's ready, here is your next Fastest Finger question. Place the following locations in the order in which they first become available to visit, starting with the latest:

A.) Gargan Roo
B.) Ipsen's Castle
C.) Conde Petie
D.) Lindblum Grand Castle

Swedish Fish
10-20-2006, 03:11 PM
Latest meaning last, correct?

Ispen's Castle, Conde Petie, Lindblum Grand Castle, and Gargan Roo, I believe.

10-20-2006, 03:12 PM
Yep, I think you understood what I meant, but unfortunately, that answer is not correct.

Swedish Fish
10-20-2006, 03:14 PM
Ah, dammit, now I remember. We're not allowed to guess twice are we?

10-20-2006, 03:14 PM
No, you're not allowed to try again until the next Fastest Finger.

10-20-2006, 03:52 PM
I'll take a chance and say:

D) Linblum Grand Castle
A) Gargan Roo
C) Conde Petie
B) Ipsen's Castle

10-20-2006, 04:18 PM
Ipsen's Castle
Conde Petie
Gargan Roo
Lindblum Grand Castle

10-20-2006, 05:56 PM
Ceidwad --- you're absolutely <font color=red>correct</font>! Enya, sorry, I was looking for them in reverse order of when you first get to visit them in the game.

All right, everybody, we're here with Ceidwad_yr_Arfau in the Hot Seat. Ceidwad is from Wales and has been with on the Shrine since July 2006. He lists his Interests as "Most sports and decent RPGs" and says that he "leeches off society as a student." We'll be back with Ceidwad to begin our game after this brief commercial interruption.


Zidane: Hey, Dagger, I found this really romantic place in another world! We gotta check it out!
Dagger: Oh, all right...

Important-Sounding Male Announcer: Final Fantasy VII's Gold Saucer --- home of many great attractions. The plays, the hotel, the games, the gondola, they've just about got it all here.

Zidane: Two, please!
Ticket-Taker at Gondola: That'll be 10 GP. How are ya' gonna pay?
Zidane: Charge it!
Ticket-Taker: (stares at credit card) I'm sorry, sir, we don't accept this card.

Announcer: So whether you're racing the chocobos or just looking for a little romance, you can do it at the Gold Saucer. But you'd better bring your Visa card. Because at the Gold Saucer, they serve people and creatures from many worlds, but they don't take American Express.

Dagger: Come on, Zidane, let's go home...
Zidane: Dammit!

Announcer: Visa. It's everywhere you want to be.


Agent0042: All right, we're back with Ceidwad_yr_Arfau. Ceidwad, you know the rules, you know the lifelines (and if you don't, it's all back in the first post of the thread), so if you're ready, let's play Who Wants to Be a Final Fantasy IX Millionaire? For 100 gil...

Which of the following characters is never playable?

A.) Zidane
B.) Kuja
C.) Blank
D.) Marcus

10-20-2006, 06:02 PM
The correct answer, unfortunately, is B) Kuja. How cool would it be to play as him though?

10-20-2006, 06:07 PM
<font color=red>Correct</font>

:) Yeah, it would be pretty sweet. But you're right. You never do get to play as him. All right, we continue for 200 gil.

Which of these locations is only accessible once you receive the airship (and also accessible by gold chocobo):

A.) Esto Gaza
B.) Dali
C.) Iifa Tree
D.) Daguerreo

10-20-2006, 06:16 PM
Tricky one. It obviously isn't Dali, and the Iifa Tree is accessible by foot too. I believe Esto Gaza can be reached via the boat on Disc 2/3, so the correct answer is Daguerreo, I'm fairly sure.

10-20-2006, 06:21 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Daguerreo is on an island without any coastline, so there's no way you're getting to it without an airship or gold chocobo.

For 300 gil...

If you were Captain Steiner, which of the following first names would you answer to? Would it be:

A.) Philbrick
B.) Adam
C.) Adelbert
D.) Albert

10-20-2006, 06:26 PM
That's Adelbert. Although I've always wondered why he's usually referred to as 'Steiner'-his surname-in the game.

But yeah, I'm going with C: Adelbert.

10-20-2006, 06:33 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

I guess it's just one of those things, like, you know, on the Harry Potter books, how the characters often refer to each other as "Potter" or "Granger" or "Malfoy," etc., if they're not a close friend.

Playing for 500 gil now...

Which of the following is not an actual Add-On? Is it:

A.) Coral Ring
B.) Turquoise Bandana
C.) Phoenix Pinion
D.) Yellow Scarf

10-20-2006, 06:39 PM
That's B: Turquoise Bandana. To my knowledge, there is no such accessory. Coral Ring allows Freya to learn Lancer, Yellow Scarf raises strength and Phoenix Pinion can be used in the same way as a Phoenix Down, or can be equipped to learn the summon Phoenix.

B it is.

10-21-2006, 01:19 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

The turquoise bandana is just something I made up off the top-of-my-head. There is definitely no turqouise bandana.

Okay, well, you're playing for 1000 gil now. If you miss this one, you'll leave with nothing, but if you get this right, you can't leave with less than 1000 gil. So here we go...

The one-word description tag for Amarant that appears on his picture during the opening sequence most closely matches which of these Seven Deadly Sins? Is it:

A.) Lust
B.) Pride
C.) Sloth
D.) Avarice

10-21-2006, 03:13 AM
Oh. Shit, that's a lot harder than I was expecting. I'm not entirely certain what Avarice means, but I can remember the one-word description for Amarant being 'Arrogance' which is similar to pride I suppose.

To be sure, can I ask the audience?

10-21-2006, 03:23 AM
Sure, you're welcome to ask the audience. Ask the Audience is now open. Audience, using your keyboards, please lock in A., B., C. or D. Please lock in only one of those answer choices --- do not provide any other explanation along with your post.

Ceidwad, you have up to 24 hours before you must post an answer or use another lifeline. You may choose to answer at any time you feel confident of the answer based on the audience vote so far. When considering the audience vote, you'll probably want to consider not just the number of people voting a particular answer, but also their post count, length of membership on the Shrine and your perception on how good you think their knowledge of FFIX, or the material covered in the question is.

Hex Omega
10-21-2006, 03:33 AM
I'm 99% sure its B

10-21-2006, 03:42 AM
Im also gonna say Pride Because its what describes him best.

10-21-2006, 06:07 AM
I'm 99% sure its B

10-21-2006, 01:00 PM
Alright that just confirms my inkling so I'll go for B: Pride. All the people who've voted seem to know their stuff.

10-21-2006, 04:05 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

You were absolutely right --- Amarant's one-word descriptor is Arrogance, and that basically translates to Pride. Avarice is anger or hatred, Sloth is of course laziness, and I think we're all pretty familiar with lust.

Ceidwad, you've reached the 1,000 gil mark. You can't leave with less than that, so you'll want to at least give an answer to this next question, no matter what. So, for 2,000 gil, let's play Who Wants to Be a Final Fantasy IX Millionaire?! (lights go down, more intense music starts up)

What tune imported from another Final Fantasy game plays during the ATE "Orchestra in the Forest?" Is this catchy tune:

A.) Infiltrating ShinRa Tower
B.) The Landing
C.) Rufus Welcoming March
D.) Edgar & Sabin / Mash

10-21-2006, 05:15 PM
That's C: the Rufus Welcoming March. And very catchy it is too. One of my favourite pieces of Final Fantasy music.

10-21-2006, 07:52 PM
<font color=red>Correct</font>

Rufus Welcoming March it is. A favorite of mine too --- I even memorized some of the "lyrics" and can sing along.

Okay, you're playing for 4,000 gil now. Only a couple more questions until the fabulous new lifelines start kicking in. So, for 4000 gil...

During dinner with Eiko, depending on your choices, Eiko might recite a line that came from Lord Avon's:

A.) Eternal Vision
B.) Wishing Upon A Star
C.) What Dreams May Come
D.) Two Hearts Connected

10-21-2006, 10:37 PM
I'm afraid I'm not entirely sure.

Can I ask/phone Enya? He/she seems to know his/her stuff as far as FFIX goes.

10-21-2006, 11:45 PM
Certainly. We'll get Enya on the line. I'll let you know when we have a response.

10-22-2006, 10:28 AM
Okay. Having played the game of recent, I am pretty sure from what I remember that the answer is:

B) Wishing Upon A Star

Is it okay for me to post Agent0042? Or should I reply to you in future and allow you to post my answer?

10-22-2006, 02:14 PM
Thanks for the help Enya.

I'll go with Enya's answer please.

10-22-2006, 03:47 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Enya --- actually, yeah, I prefer for the Phone-a-Friend to send me the response by PM and then I'll post it, just to be on the safe side. But no harm, no foul, your response was okay.

All right, we're playing for 8,000 gil now. This is kind of an important level, because if you get this one, another of the fantastic new lifelines kicks in. For the time being, you still have your 50:50 left, but remember that if you use it now, you won't be able to use it in conjunction with Double Dip later, so that might be something to keep in mind. So, for 8000 gil...

The line "Awesome! Engage according to mission parameters!" is said by which of the following characters:

A.) Rat Kid
B.) Kohel
C.) Lowell
D.) Moco

10-22-2006, 03:59 PM
That's A: Rat Kid, who is also known as Puck, who befriends Vivi early in the game.

10-22-2006, 04:08 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

No slipping that one by you, Rat Kid, before you find out his name is Puck, says that one. Well, you've reached the 8,000 gil mark, which means that you now have access to an exciting new lifeline --- ask GameFAQs/FFShrine/Google. Basically, if you use this one, you can go off and check some FAQ or script at GameFAQs or over at the main FFShrine site, or Google something before answering the question. Caveat --- I am asking you check only one document/page, so please make your decision carefully before deciding which FAQ/page you'd like to consult. Normally, I trust that you're not off consulting some other site when answering the questions, but this lifeline rescinds that. If you use this lifeline, just do it and then say that you used it when you answer the question.

So, for 16000 gil...

In which of the following locations can you not find a coffee for the Morrid Quest? Is that:

A.) A South Gate Entrance
B.) Quan's Dwelling
C.) Dali Windmill Area
D.) Eiko's Porch

10-22-2006, 04:32 PM
I used my Google-it lifeline, and searched none other than this site. The correct answer is B: Quan's Dwelling.

10-22-2006, 04:42 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

You won't find any coffee at Quan's Dwelling. The one at the windmill you really have to work for, the other two are easy. Well, you're now playing for 32000 gil. And good news, you now have access to Double Dip, which you can use to take two guesses at a question. If you use this after using 50:50, that's an automatic right answer. Of course, that also means you would burn two lifelines on one question, so consider it carefully. This is another important question because if you get this correct, you can't leave her with less than 32000 gil. So, for 32000 gil...

What is the name of the Self-Proclaimed Artist who lives in Lindblum? Is this Self-Proclaimed Artist:

A.) Monty
B.) Merriweather
C.) Michael
D.) Milford

P.S.: If you'd like to use Double Dip, just say that you're using it and post two answers. If either is right, you advance. But remember, you can't activate 50:50 for the question after you've used Double Dip.

10-22-2006, 04:45 PM
Can I use 50:50?

10-22-2006, 04:49 PM
Certainly! Computer, please randomly take away two of the incorrect answers, leaving one wrong answer and the correct answer. The computer has eliminated B.) and D.).

What is the name of the Self-Proclaimed Artist who lives in Lindblum? Is this Self-Proclaimed Artist:

A.) Monty
C.) Michael

10-22-2006, 04:54 PM
Erm, I'll have to use my Double Dip here. If I was pushed I'd say Michael but I don't remember that part of the game too well. Plus with 32000 round the corner, I think it's the best choice.

I'll use my Double Dip and answer both A and C.

10-22-2006, 05:17 PM
Okay, Double Dip is active, meaning that by answering A.) and C.), you've guaranteed yourself the 32,000 gil level. And you're correct, it actually is Michael. His studio has one of the potions that ultimately end up transforming Regent Cid into a frog.

Well, you've reached 32,000 gil, so you can't walk away with less than that. This next question is essentially a free guess. You don't currently have any lifelines, although if you get this one right, you'll gain access to the Ask the Experts lifeline. We're playing for 64,000 gil now, five questions away from 1,000,000 gil.

Which of the following is a name of a Chocograph location as it appears on the Chocograph list? Is it:

A.) Hot Springs
B.) Hidden in the Moonlight
C.) Barren Wasteland
D.) Sea At Dusk

10-22-2006, 05:27 PM
I never completed the Chocograph side-quest, so I've no idea. I'll take a stab in the dark and say D: Sea at Dusk. The furthest I got in the Chocograph quest was getting Choco the river and mountain ability, which implies that further ones would be in the deep water. Hence the reasoning behind my guess.

I'm probably wrong but either way I have nothing to lose so I'll go for D.

10-22-2006, 10:34 PM
<font color=red>Correct</font>

Your instincts were right. Sea At Dusk is an actual one, the others are just ones I made up. You've reached the 64,000 gil level, which means you now have access to the Ask the Experts lifeline. You're playing for 125,000 gil now. We're talking big stuff here. If you get this wrong, you'll drop back down to 32,000 gil.

So here it is, for 125000 gil...

Which is the following is an actual Quina blue magic? Is it:

A.) Missiles
B.) Shadow Flare
C.) Level 2 Confuse
D.) Level 3 Def-Less

10-22-2006, 11:03 PM
Before I decide what to do, am I allowed to know which users are on the experts panel?

10-22-2006, 11:19 PM
Yeah, certainly. I shoulda done that right away once the lifeline become available. Currently on the panel are: Joey, Xander and FF1WithAllThieves.

10-22-2006, 11:32 PM
I'll ask the experts. Hopefully they know the answer!

I have an inkling but am not 100% sure, so even if you guys could juist eliminate a couple of answers it'd be a help.

10-22-2006, 11:35 PM
Okay, let's activate the Ask the Experts lifeline. I'll be sending out PMs to each of them. They will respond to me by PM and I will give you their results here. If any panel member has not responded within 24 hours, I will just summarize the responses of those that did respond.

10-23-2006, 12:25 AM

10-23-2006, 12:29 AM
wth is that about?

10-23-2006, 12:38 AM
Just when I thought this nutter couldn't get any weirder. Sorry folks. Ignore, ignore, ignore.

10-23-2006, 01:07 PM
your doing really well ceidwad :D

10-23-2006, 01:17 PM
Ack, bollocks. I saw you'd posted in this thread and was hoping you might have not read the rules and posted the correct answer by mistake. ;-)

Ah well.

PS Agent0042, While I'm not in a hurry or anything, has anyone responded to the PMs yet?

10-23-2006, 03:02 PM
Ceidwad --- I'm afraid I can't post the results until all three panel members have responded, or until the 24 hours are up. If I haven't heard from all three by around 6 P.M. this evening (I think that's when the time is up) I will post the results for those who did respond and whoever didn't will be booted from the panel.

10-23-2006, 03:07 PM
What if after the time is up they give you a really good excuse why they didnt respond and want to remain on the panel? Example they were forced out of town because of a funeral or something?

Edit: Will do, agent.

10-23-2006, 03:11 PM
This really isn't the place for such discussions. Kindly take it to PM, eh?

10-23-2006, 08:11 PM
whoops my bad soz

10-23-2006, 08:19 PM
Thanks much.

10-23-2006, 08:52 PM
So agent we getting the answers soon. I wanna see how he does :P

10-23-2006, 08:54 PM
I'm afraid I can't post the results until all three panel members have responded, or until the 24 hours are up. If I haven't heard from all three by around 6 P.M. this evening (I think that's when the time is up) I will post the results

Oh, that's 6 P.M. eastern time. About two hours from now.

10-23-2006, 10:52 PM
Okay, Ceidwad_yr_Arfau. All members of the panel have reported back. All members have chosen answer D.) Level 3 Def-Less. FF1WithAllThieves comments that Missiles is just a variation on Quistis Blue Magic, and the other two are FFVII Enemy Skills. Joey says he remembers one of the spells being something along the lines of Def-Less. Xander says he acquired all the Blue Magic on a recent playthrough and he remembers this one.

10-23-2006, 11:32 PM
That's what I thought too, so I'll go with it. It was between that and Lv. 2 Confuse.

Cheers guys.

I'll go with D as my answer.

10-24-2006, 12:54 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

You were right to trust the panel --- the others are from other games or made up. Well, you're out of lifelines, but you've been doing great. You're playing for 250,000 gil now. If you risk and you're wrong, you'll only leave with 32,000 gil. But let's take a look at the question for 250,000 gil...

Which of the following is not an actual Tetra Master rank? Is it:

A.) Shark
B.) Shuffler
C.) Authority
D.) Trader

10-24-2006, 01:08 AM
Flippin heck that's difficult. I know Shark was an actual rank, but the other three I'm pretty uncertain on. But I've made it this far and I've got a bit of a feeling it's B: Shuffler.

I'm only about 50% sure, but it's only imaginary gil. I'm guaranteed 32000 which is a bloody lot of gil in anyone's book. And if I make it to 500000 gil I've got my eye on that villa in Costa Del Sol. Cloud says he won't sell for less than 600K, but I'm confident my haggling skills are better than his. ;-)

Yeah, I've made up my mind, I'm going for Shuffler. It doesn't sound like a real rank to me, which is probably bullshit logic to base my answer on, but ah well!

PS can you tell me straight away whether I'm right or wrong, and then post the next question (if I'm right) later? Reason I ask is as it's 1 am over here in Wales and I'm working tomorrow!


10-24-2006, 01:27 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Yeah, you were only taking a guess, but yep, you got it right. Shuffler is a fake one I made up. The rest are all real Tetra Master ranks. Good going.

All right, next question going up later. In the meantime, the program will break for the following message from our sponsor:


Zidane: (speaking using Kuja's voice) So I just used the "Steal" command and there it was. 1,000,000 gil line and it was all mine. A little redecorating for the palace here. A few more spooky lamps, a better security system and 100,000 gil to aid in my plan. My master plan! (laughs evilly)

Message appears on-screen: Zidane Tribal --- Identity Theft Victim
Identity Theft - FF Villains' New Tactic

Female Announcer: Citi Identity Theft Solutions, free with any Citi card. Citi --- Live Richly.


10-24-2006, 01:49 AM
Can't believe I got it right!

Cloud had better have the keys to that villa ready and waiting. ;-)

10-24-2006, 01:30 PM
All right, let's keep going. You've really been doing well. You took a risk and it paid off. You're up to 250000 gil. If you risk this next one and you're wrong, again, you'll be back down 32000 gil. But if you get it right, it's 500000 gil, just one level away from the million. So let's take a look at the question for 500000 gil...

In Lindblum, in the Business District, Vivi encounters two kids playing with "Royal Action Figures." He comments that they're like the black mages --- the figurines. The names of these two kids are:

A.) Poncho and Phillipo
B.) Pete and Perry
C.) Petunia and Clarabelle
D.) Anne and James

10-24-2006, 02:01 PM
I'm going to have to walk with the 250,000 gil as I've absolutely no idea here. It's been about ten months since my last playthrough of FFIX and I've only completed the game twice.

Don't think I'll be getting that villa in Costa Del Sol now, but what with global warming, it's easy to get something cheap in Icicle Inn these days. I'll have a look there. ;-)

Thanks for letting me have a go at this Agent.

10-24-2006, 02:07 PM
Wow..i actually had a guess too. Can i tell my guess?

Mr Jack
10-24-2006, 02:09 PM
may i recommend an ad break?!?

They're quite frikkin hilarious

10-24-2006, 03:08 PM
CorroDedSouL --- if you had a guess, you shoulda made it before I continued the game. And irvine --- I'm trying to put some spacing between the ad breaks, but thanks!

Well, Ceidwad_yr_Arfau did very well. He won 250000 gil. The correct answer was A.) Poncho and Phillipo. Those are the two kids Vivi spots playing with the "Royal Action Figures." Well, that was a good run, but if everybody's ready, we're starting up again. So here is our next Fastest Finger Question...

Place these moogles in the order in which you first encounter them:

A.) Kuppo
B.) Mois
C.) Kupo
D.) Momatose

If you've played before, you're not currently eligible. If you guess and get it wrong, you're out until the next Fastest Finger.

10-24-2006, 03:12 PM

Damn, Bryan's here first...

10-24-2006, 06:02 PM
Let's see who had it right... xivoz, Bryan and Magester... and in the fastest time... xivoz! So if you ready xivoz, let's play!

(exciting music plays as xivoz proceeds to the Hot Seat)

All right, we're here now with xivoz, playing our game. xizov only just joined the Shrine this month. So far he has been active mainly in both the FFVII and FFIX sections of the Shrine. Well, xivoz, I assume you know about the rules and the lifelines. So if you're ready, let's play Who Wants to Be a Final Fantasy IX Millionaire!

For 100 gil...

When Quina Quen goes into Trance, what does hir Eat command change into? Is it:

A.) Fry
B.) Cook
C.) Roast
D.) Burn, Baby, Burn!

10-24-2006, 06:35 PM
B) cook

10-24-2006, 07:56 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

The Eat command changes to Cook, which makes it somewhat easier to learn Blue Magic.

FFIX Millionaire will return following this special...

Behind the Scenes --- More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About FFIX Millionaire

In this special, we will examine the game and its host in more depth...

Agent0042: So, how did you come up with the idea for Final Fantasy IX Millionaire?
Agent0042: Well, I saw Adamant Barrage's thread over in the FFVII section and I knew I just had to try this. I was a big fan of Millionaire when it aired on ABC and I thought this would make a good concept for the FFIX section.

Agent0042: How do you determine the questions for the game?
Agent0042: Sometimes I just determine them off the top of my head, but for some of the tougher ones, I refer to scripts and FAQs at GameFAQs, as well as the main FFShrine site. The questions for the earlier dollar values are intended be stuff that are really easy, that anyone who'd played the game at least once the whole way should know. Then it starts getting into sidequests and other tougher stuff. I'm not going to say exactly what a million dollar question would look like, but expect it to be something really tough and obscure and use those lifelines well.

Agent0042: So what exactly do the questions cover?
Agent0042: Basically, anything related to FFIX is fair game. You might see something related to the music, the FMVs, a quote from the game, even references in Kingdom Hearts. FFIX is such a narrow scope compared to the general trivia covered on the actual Millionaire that you really have to cover just about every aspect to keep it challenging and interesting.

Agent0042: Explain the experts panel, please.
Agent0042: Sure! The "experts panel" is based on the Three Wise Men lifeline from Super Millionaire. It's a panel of three experts that become avalable when the contestant reaches the 64000 gil level. To be on the panel, you need to send me a PM. Also, ideally, you need to have been a former contestant and reached at least the 32000 gil level or have been someone that's been on the Shrine for a while and/or has been regularly active in this section. Oh, and the members of the panel are rotated from time-to-time. While you're on the panel, you're ineligible to play, or to be used as a Phone a Friend.

Agent0042: Regis Millionaire or syndicated Meredith Viera Millionaire --- which do you prefer?
Agent0042: Regis, definitely. Viera is a competent enough host, but syndicated Millionaire airs a bit too often and I could never really get into it. The Regis version was great, but ABC really aired it too much and drove it into the ground. Still, Super Millionaire was awesome and I hope to maybe see it again sometime. And I still watch the show very occasionally from time-to-time on GSN.

Agent0042: If you could go on any game show, what would it be?
Agent0042: Probably GSN's Lingo. I'm like an ace at playing that game along at home and I have no doubt if I found a good partner, I could absolutely clean up. Barring that --- Wheel of Fortune.

Agent0042: If you could port any other game show concept to FFShrine, what would it be?
Agent0042: It would be thrilling to do that new NBC show --- 1 vs. 100, although I have no idea how it could possibly be implemented.

Agent0042: What's your favorite Final Fantasy game?
Agent0042: I like to say it varies based on my mood. The default answer is Final Fantasy IX. However, I'm also very fond of Final Fantasy X-2, V and VI. For overall playing hours, I've probably logged the most on X and X-2, because they each have so much to explore and sidequests especially in X-2. I'm also a devout Kingdom Hearts fanatic.

We now resume our game. For 200 gil, a visual clue...

Which of the following FMVs does this image originate from? Is it:

A.) Garnet Cuts Her Hair
B.) Alexander Saves the Day
C.) Escape from the Evil Forest
D.) Journey to Another World

10-24-2006, 10:15 PM
C.) Escape from the Evil Forest

10-24-2006, 10:28 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

That exciting scene was in fact from that FMV.

So next up, for 300 gil...

The name of the railcar system is:

A.) Noblitz
B.) Persia
C.) Berkmea
D.) Burmecia

10-24-2006, 10:52 PM
hmm this is a hard question but ill give it a guess with
C.) Berkmea

10-24-2006, 10:56 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

C.) Berkmea is the name of the cable-car / railcar system. Noblitz I made up, Persia is a country (and there's also prince of Persia) and Burmecia is a town in the game.

Up next, for 500 gil...

Which of these is not one of the Tantalus "ero" brothers? Is it:

A.) Genero
B.) Zenero
C.) Benero
D.) Jenero

10-24-2006, 11:02 PM
wow did not expect to get the last one right!
but i dont know this one either, i dont remember Jenero when i played this mini-game, so im going with
D.) Jenero

10-24-2006, 11:07 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Jenero is not one of those brothers. The others are bonified members of Tantalus.

Well, you're doing very well so far. You haven't used any lifelines yet and this next question is for 1000 gil. If you get this right, you can't leave with less than 1000 gil. So let's play for 1000 gil...

The set of items that greatly reduce some stats and set others to zero are known generally as the:

A.) Northern Gear
B.) Southern Tropical Outfits
C.) Western Stylings
D.) Eastern Rags

10-24-2006, 11:14 PM
oh man, i got lucky with the last question. i remeber having aloha t-shirts, sandals, straw hats etc. so im going with
B.) Southern Tropical Outfits
P.S. if i get this right and move on then i cant answer another question for a while because im going to bed now. but if i get it wrong just forget this lol.

10-24-2006, 11:17 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

All right, I'll let you go to bed and in the meantime, we'll break for another of those commercial messages...

Cid Highwind: You #@$%#! I told you exactly which way to go but look --- look what happened!
Pilot: B...But it wasn't my fault, sir!
Cid: WHAT?! Damn you, you weren't listening to what I was saying?
Sprint Guy: No, actually, he couldn't hear you. It's the static. It can really make a mess of things. Here, try this. (He hands Cid a Sprint cell phone.)
Female Announcer: Now try Sprint, with our worldwide network. With this coverage, you'll never miss a call. Sign up now, and get a free Final Fantasy poster.
Sprint Guy: And all the calls are clear. And this (indicates the smoking wreckage of the Highwind) will never happen again.

10-25-2006, 03:37 AM
Haha, those commercial messages are pretty damn funny Agent.

(If this is considered shitting up the thread, I am sorry.)

10-25-2006, 03:45 AM
Roffle, I'm not nearly as anal as some about the shitting up of the thread or whatever. If somebody wants to say that they like the commercials, that's cool with me. And thanks. :)

10-25-2006, 10:15 AM
ok. ready for the next question :D

10-25-2006, 11:25 AM
Hey, Agent 0042, can I post an advert, next break? I got one planned! It's quite funny! Oh and Xivoz, Good luck man!

10-25-2006, 11:38 AM
thanks for the support magester :D

10-25-2006, 02:22 PM
Magester, if you wanna post an ad on the next break, go ahead, sure.

Okay, let's continue now. We're playing for 2000 gil. You still have all your lifelines and it won't be all that long before you reach the point where the fantastic new lifelines start kicking in. So, for 2000 gil...

Which of the following is not an actual weapon in the game? Is it:

A.) Multina Racket
B.) Dragoon Lance
C.) Asura's Rod
D.) Obelisk

10-25-2006, 03:59 PM
that would be
B.) Dragoon Lance
beacuse dragoon lance is one of kimarihs weapons from FFX

10-25-2006, 07:23 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Heh, actually, I pulleed it out of a list of Cid's weapons from FFVII, but the answer is still correct. You're playing for 4000 gil now and here comes the next question...

Which of the following is not one of the mini-figurines? Is it:

A.) Mini-Cid
B.) Mini-Burmecia
C.) Mini-Hilda Garde
D.) Mini-Prima Vista

10-25-2006, 07:37 PM
Sweet, cheers Agent0042. Hang in there Xivoz!

10-25-2006, 09:19 PM
C.) Mini-Hilda Garde
because mini- theatre ship is from morrid, mini cid is from treno and mini burmecia is from the tantalus hideout. :D

10-26-2006, 01:06 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Mini-Hilda Garde isn't one of those figurines.

Well, you're doing great. You're going for 8000 gil now. Let's see the question...

When you have to select the pairings of Pluto Knights in Disc 3 in Alexandria, which of the following is one of the available pairings? Is it:

A.) Dojebon & Breireicht
B.) Dojebon & Mullenkedheim
C.) Dojebon & Kohel
D.) Breireicht & Blutzen

10-26-2006, 09:51 AM
well im lucky i went through this part of the game 3 days ago.
the answer is
B.) Dojebon & Mullenkedheim
as they are sent to fire cannons :D

10-26-2006, 01:40 PM
(damn double post)

:) Lucky indeed, on that one. Dojebon & Mullenkedheim it is. And good memory.
Well, you've just reached the 8000 gil level, which means you now have access to one of the nifty new lifelines --- Ask Google/GameFAQs/FFShrine Main Site/etc. Basically, if you want to use this, just go ahead and use it and consult one, but only one script, guide or FAQ, so make your choice carefully. And then just let me know when answering that you used it.

So, playing for 16000 gil now...

Who is the only character that speaks in the Active Time Event "Friendship?" Is it:

A.) Cinna
B.) Vivi
C.) Marcus
D.) Zidane

10-26-2006, 05:45 PM
i think it it the ATE with blank and marcus in evil forest so im going with
C.) Marcus

The game will return soon, in the mean-time, if you're reading, Magester, this is your chance to post your commercial.

10-26-2006, 08:38 PM
Woohoo! A commercial! *watches eagerly* knock em dead, Magester!

10-26-2006, 08:50 PM
Sweet Commercial Time! Now, you gotta use some imagination with this one:

(Zidane is walking away from a rollercoaster in a packed theme park. He looks sad. The man at the entrance of the rollercoaster is shaking his head - he stands next to a height meter, usually found at the entrance of intense rides to stop small children from entering)

Zidane: “They won’t let me onto many of the rollercoasters because of this…"
(Garnet is surrounded by real people, all of whom are quite a lot taller than her. She is on an underground train. Only the bottom half of the real people can be seen in the photo)

Garnet: “People constantly look down upon me…”
(Vivi is being picked on by some children. They are kicking puddle water at him. The children are about the same height as Vivi)

Vivi: “Everyone believes I’m just a kid. I’m 43!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Remember Children: Steroids can stunt your growth.

Cheers for the support, Corroded Soul! If anyone felt last ad was a bit tasteless, then I've got another one:

Kuja: You know, covering the whole of Gaia in mist is pretty hard work, even for an evil genius like me. But when I need to kick back and relax (usually after casting Ultima or trancing etc.), I like to play Kingdom Hearts II (rated 12+)! Join Sora, Donald and Goofy as they continue their journey to defeat the evil Heartless (personally, I hope they fail). Out now in a computer games store near you!

10-26-2006, 10:05 PM
All right, let's go on now. You're really doing very well, xivoz. You're playing for 32,000 gil and you still have all your lifelines, plus you've just gained access to Double Dip. So let's have a look at the next question. If you get this right, you can't leave with less than 32,000 gil...

Which of the following is not a track from the Original Soundtrack Plus?

Is it:

A.) Summoning to Destroy Cleyra
B.) Journey to Another World
C.) A New Queen is Born
D.) The Fall of Neo-Kuja

10-27-2006, 12:37 AM
Nice ones, Magester. I thought the first one was really funny. It didnt take any imagination at all for me! The 2nd one i didnt get at first, until it got to Kujas personal thoughts at the end. Then it was funny.

P.S. Good luck, xivoz!

10-27-2006, 10:03 AM
hmm unless this is a trick question the obvious choice is
D.) The Fall of Neo-Kuja
as neo-kuja does not exixst.

10-27-2006, 01:16 PM
<font color="red">Wrong</font>

Oh man, xivoz, I didn't expect that. If you weren't sure, you probably shoulda used a lifeline. It's not a trick question, but the Soundtrack Plus has a lot of funnily-named tracks and The Fall of Neo-Kuja is one of them. I guess you could call Kuja's second form "Neo-Kuja." The correct answer was B.) Journey to Another World. Many of the tracks on the Soundtrack Plus are based on FMVs, but that particular one wasn't one of them. You leave with 1,000 gil.

Wow, I hate when that happens, but unfortunately, that's how it goes sometimes. We continue on, with our next Fastest Finger question...

Place these Chocograph locations in order by number, starting with the earliest:

A.) Ocean
B.) Forgotten Lagoon
C.) Streamside
D.) Fairy Island

10-27-2006, 01:21 PM
Ahh ill give it a shot

C, A, B, D

10-27-2006, 01:23 PM
:( Ah man, sorry, Xander, not right. I'm afraid you'll have to wait till the next Fastest Finger.

10-27-2006, 09:51 PM

10-27-2006, 10:51 PM
Okay, let's see who got right... ROKI and Kailas. And in the fastest time... ROKI.

:) Welcome to our game, ROKI! ROKI has been with us on the Shrine for a little more than a year now. He's pretty active on both the Final Fantasy and general gaming areas of the Shrine. Well, ROKI, you know about the rules and the lifelines, so if you're ready, let's play! (dramatic music plays)

For 100 gil...

What knight with dirty, rusty armor does Beatrix fall for? Is that:

A.) Kohel
B.) Steiner
C.) Zidane
D.) Queen Brahne

10-28-2006, 06:28 AM
Steiner of course! :)

10-28-2006, 07:35 AM
damn double posts...

10-28-2006, 07:35 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

But of course. Steiner it is, for 100 gil. Playing for 200 gil now. I have to ask you ROKI --- do you want the money, or do you want the Mob? ... ... Oops! Sorry, wrong game! :D Okay, for 200 gil...

Which of these aren't lyrics from "Melodies of Life:"

A.) How can I let you know I'm more than the dress and the voice
B.) A voice from the past joining yours and mine
C.) I've laid my memories and dreams upon those wings
D.) To weave by picking up the pieces that remain

10-28-2006, 11:18 AM
A.) How can I let you know I'm more than the dress and the voice

Te Mob :D

10-28-2006, 12:28 PM
This game is exelent agent0042 keep it going :D:D

10-28-2006, 03:50 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Can't slip any FFVIII lyrics by you. For 300 gil...

What is Freya's last name? Is it:

A.) Tribal
B.) Carol
C.) Ornitier
D.) Crescent

10-28-2006, 03:58 PM
Its D)Crescent :)

10-28-2006, 04:06 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Crescent it is and we continue for 500 gil...

Which of these is not a summon in the game? Is it:

A.) Fenrir
B.) Phoenix
C.) Leviathan
D.) Titan

10-28-2006, 04:52 PM
D.) Titan. I thik he was a summon for last time in FF7

10-28-2006, 07:53 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Titan is not a summon in this game. Well, you have 500 gil, you're going for 1000 now. If you get this right, you can't leave with less than a 1000. So, for 1000 gil...

Which of these characters does not join Zidane at one point or another during the fighting in the "You're Not Alone" sequence:

A.) Quina
B.) Steiner
C.) Vivi
D.) Freya

10-28-2006, 10:53 PM
Hmm thats Vivi. Meybe i risk it but its just a game :)

10-29-2006, 12:26 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Vivi it is. The others all help out Zidane in battle at various times in that seqeunce. Well, you've reached the 1000 gil level, which means you can't leave with less than that. But let's take a look at the 2000 gil question...

Which of these is not a track on the original soundtrack? Is it:

A.) Crystal World
B.) Aloha de Chocobo
C.) Limited Time
D.) Breaking Through South Gate

10-29-2006, 08:59 AM
D.) Breaking Through South Gate

10-29-2006, 06:05 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

"Breaking Through South Gate" is on that Original Soundtrack Plus. All of the others are on the original soundtrack. Okay, playing for 4000 gil now...

This character "called me a liar and a loudmouth and a brat!!!" Just who was it who called Eiko that? Was it:

A.) Amarant Coral
B.) Captain Adelbert Steiner
C.) Freya Crescent
D.) Baku

10-29-2006, 07:18 PM
I remember the moment, and if im right i remrmber Amarant saying afterwards "He is right", so he was not the one. Baku was really friendly with Eiko, he even accepted to deliver her letter to Zidane. I think Eiko do not meet Freya until Bahamut attacked Alexandrio, so i go for Captain Adelbert Steiner

10-30-2006, 01:02 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Steiner was the one who called her that, yeah. Well, you're playing for 8000 gil now. If you get this one right, you'll have access to one of the new lifelines. So here's your question, for 8000 gil...

When you play the music box in the Black Mage Village, you get a tune from a previous Final Fantasy game. This tune is known as:

A.) Four Old Men's Theme
B.) Nostalgia
C.) Lute of Noah
D.) Doga and Une

10-30-2006, 05:35 AM
This is a hard one as i never cared to find out :( Ill get the ask the audience :)

10-30-2006, 05:43 AM
doga and une!

10-30-2006, 05:44 AM
Certainly! Let's open the Ask the Audience on this one. Audience, on your keyboards, please lock in A., B., C., or D. Please lock in only one of those for answer choices --- I am asking that you include nothing else with your post. And please don't consult any sources other than your own existing knowledge (though I know I can't enforce that.)

Edit: For the future --- could people please wait to lock in their votes until I've officially "opened" the lifeline. Thanks.

ROKI --- when answering, you'll want to consider both overall number of votes for a choice, as well as the experience of the poster, time spent on the Shrine, etc. Ask the Audience is open for no more than 24 hours or lock in your final answer whenever you feel confident on a choice based on the response so far.

10-30-2006, 05:46 AM

Hex Omega
10-30-2006, 05:52 AM
I'm partial to D) but I wouldn't be confident of it to be honest.

10-30-2006, 04:06 PM
yes it's D, cause you need doga's artif and une's mirror

10-30-2006, 04:17 PM
Ill go with D too, but dtpena, Your not supposed to include a reason...

10-30-2006, 06:04 PM
Ok then i go for D, Doga and Une. Thanks for the help guys :)

10-30-2006, 06:51 PM
Since I've heard it, I know for certain that its D, Doga and Une (one of the songs on the soundtrack is named this as well as, i think, two items, both with the word's Doga and Une on them - one is a mirror. You need one or both of the items to play the theme).

10-30-2006, 08:17 PM
Im not 100% sure but Doga and Une does sound right

So D

10-30-2006, 08:21 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Thanks, Magester, for not following my instructions like at all. But your post was after the answer had already came in, so ah well. Anyway, yes. In order to play it, you need to have the Key Items Doga's Artifact and Une's Mirror. Doga and Une were two powerful black mages in Final Fantasy III, so this was a clever tribute to them. Their tune, "Pavilion of Doga and Une" is available on the FFIII soundtrack and "Doga and Une" is available on the FFIX Soundtrack Plus.

Well, you've reached the 8000 gil level, ROKI, which means you now have access to the lifeline Ask Google/GameFAQs/FFShrine Main Site/etc. You may use any one of these resources to help you, but I am asking that you consult one, and only one document, so please be certain before making your choice. If you use this lifeline, just go ahead and use and then tell me that you used it.

So, for 16000 gil...

Which of the following moogles is not involved at all in the sidequest to restore Mognet to functionality? Is it:

A.) Mois
B.) Mocha
C.) Atla
D.) Mogryo

10-31-2006, 05:39 AM
Ok this is a bit too risky but i go for B)Mocha

10-31-2006, 05:53 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Very good. Mocha is one of the Madain Sari moogles and therefore wouldn't be involved in that. Well, you've reached the 16000 gil level and so you have another of the new lifelines, Double Dip. You're going for 32000 gil and if you get this right, you can't leave with less than that. So here we go...

Which of these is not an actual Tetra Master card? Is that:

A.) Phoenix
B.) Stroper
C.) Armstrong
D.) Odin

10-31-2006, 06:58 PM

10-31-2006, 09:05 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Phoenix it is. The others are all actual cards. Well, you've reached the 32000 gil level, so you can't leave with less than that. So you'll want to at least take a shot on this question for 64000 gil and here it is...

Which of these is an actual key item legend / description? Is it:

A.) Water is the essence of life. It flows from the sea, nourishing all that touches. ==David Heaveguard==
B.) Fire was a gift from the heavens. It must never be used fer evil. =David Heavenguard=
C.) Saw this the other day at a shop! Said I'd never seen anything uglier in my life! Gwahahahaha! ==Baku==
D.) Coffee is what gets me going. Did you know some have called it the elixir of life? ==Morrid==

11-01-2006, 02:14 PM
I ll get the phone a friend, and i want to call enya :) Trustable person :) (do i have to send a pm myself or you will send it?)

Mr Jack
11-01-2006, 02:45 PM
wow, is it me or is Enya the one whom everybody seems to be turning to in times of need? (myself inc.)

11-01-2006, 03:00 PM
I will handle the PM on the Phone a Friend.

Okay, certainly, Phone a Friend is active. The good folks at UFFC (United Final Fantasy Communications) will get Enya on the line.

Enya will have 24 hours to respond --- I'll post her response here.

11-01-2006, 03:21 PM
ROKI --- UFFC has done its usual nice job and was able to quickly get in contact with Enya.

She said that she's pretty sure the answer is B. She says she played through the game recently and she's positive this is an actual Key Item legend description, unlike the others.

11-01-2006, 06:21 PM
I trust her so ill go for B
Thanks for the fast respond Enya :)

11-01-2006, 06:59 PM
Hey, no problem. I hope it's right! ^^

11-01-2006, 08:18 PM
<font color="red">Corrrect</font>

B. was the right answer, the others I just made up to sound like plausible key item descriptions. You've reached the 64000 gil level, which means you now have access to Ask the Experts. The panel is still FF1WithAllThieves, Joey and Xander, although after this one (if you use the lifeline), I might rotate in some different people. So if anyone else wants to be on the panel, let me know.

So, for 125000 gil...

"Quite a party this is becoming. It would be my pleasure."

This line is said by which of these characters? Is it:

A.) Regent Cid
B.) General Beatrix
C.) Doctor Tot
D.) Lani

11-02-2006, 07:46 PM
Oh god i really cant even remember these lines:( Ill take ask the experts

11-02-2006, 09:52 PM
Okay, certainly! I will PM the experts with the question and the four answer choices. They will each have 24 hours to respond and I will report back their responses here.

11-03-2006, 04:14 AM
ROKI, all three of our experts have chosen C.) Doctor Tot.

FF1WithAllThieves says that the overall amused tone fits the nature of his character. Joey comments that it was betweeen either Beatrix or Tot for him, but after further thinking, he says it sounds like the line would be said during traveling, and he recalls traveling with Doctor Tot going from Alexandria to Treno. And finally, Xander says he played through recently and recalls it being Doctor Tot. He also uses a process of elimination and comments that Doctor Tot is "old-fashioned," so he would speak like that.

11-03-2006, 05:37 AM
Ok i will go for C.) Doctor Tot

11-03-2006, 06:21 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Good choice --- the panel didn't let you down. Tot does indeed say that, and as was said, it's when everyone decides to go to Treno on on Disc 3.

Well, you're really doing excellent! You're playing for 250,000 gil and you still have three lifelines --- 50:50, Double Dip and Ask FFShrine/GameFAQs/Google.

Let's take a look at the question for 250,000 gil...

Which of the following is not a statement made by the Ragtime Mouse (to which the player must respond True or False):

A.) Lindblum Castle is larger than Alexandria Castle.
B.) Prima Vista means love at first sight.
C.) Conde Petie is a village of Goblins.
D.) Queen Brahme is the leader of Alexandria.

11-03-2006, 07:57 AM
That wasn't as close as I thought it was going to be. It sounded as if it was part of something Beatrix said during the storming and escaping from Alexandria.

11-03-2006, 06:09 PM

11-03-2006, 06:18 PM
Let's see who got it right and in the fastest time... Xander! Xander, come on over to the Hot Seat! (exciting, dramatic music plays)

Well, we've Xander in the Hot Seat with us now. He's been a regular here on the Shrine since 2004. He runs the Rumble for this section of the boards and he's a Star Trek: Voyager fan.

Xander, I'm pretty sure you know about the rules and the lifelines, so let's play!

For 100 gil...

When it's decided that Princess Garnet should change her name to blend in, what is the default choice for the new name? Is that:

A.) Daggress
B.) Dagger
C.) Daguerreo
D.) Hunting Knife

11-03-2006, 07:08 PM
It was a nice game!:) I really had fun with it :) Good luck Xander

11-03-2006, 08:35 PM
I believe the answer is B:Dagger

11-03-2006, 09:28 PM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Of course. Dagger it is. And on we go for 200 gil...

Which of the following characters does not serve in any sort of "governmental" / "royal" capacity? Is that...

A.) Cinna
B.) Beatrix
C.) Artania
D.) Puck

11-03-2006, 11:35 PM
A Cinna

I just hope to god im not being completly thick.

11-03-2006, 11:38 PM
I am gonna say

A Cinna

Lets just hope im not completly stupid

11-03-2006, 11:38 PM
I am gonna say

A Cinna

Lets just hope im not completly stupid

11-04-2006, 12:00 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Hope you're able to see this okay, with what's happening with the forums.

Next, for 300 gil...

What item is required in this game to save on the World Map? Is that item:

A.) Moogle's Flute
B.) Moogle's Charm
C.) Moogle's Hair
D.) Chocobo Locket

11-04-2006, 12:14 AM
Yeah I can just work it out.

I think thats the Moogles Flute

11-04-2006, 12:15 AM
Yeah I can just work it out.

I think thats the Moogles Flute

11-04-2006, 01:16 AM
Has the thread messed up or something? i swear the last few posts were from a couple pages back. Just incase they're not ill go C D B A

11-04-2006, 01:35 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

AndyCJ --- yes the thread has gone messed up. All threads recently posted in today on the boards are currently being affected by this error.

Anyway, Moogle's Flute was correct. So now, for 500 gil...

Which of these is not a Zidane Trance --- Dyne ability:

A.) Shift Break
B.) Electric Shock
C.) Meo Twister
D.) Stellar Circle 5

11-04-2006, 01:47 AM
C, D, B, A

11-04-2006, 01:48 AM
Im not 100% sure but im gonna say

Electric Shock

11-04-2006, 01:53 AM
C D B A=)

11-04-2006, 04:33 AM
B.) Prima Vista means love at first sight.

11-04-2006, 04:37 AM
<font color="red">Wrong</font>

Man, I'm really sorry, ROKI, but "Prima Vista means love at first sight" is one of the statements that Ragtime Mouse makes to which the player must respond "True or False." The answer, of course, would be false.

The correct answer for this question was D.) Queen Brahme is the leader of Alexandria. That was just something I made up by myself.

Well, thanks for playing! You were a really great player and you leave with 32,000 gil. But for those who've been waiting to play, now's your chance, as it's time for our next Fastest Finger question...

Place these characters in the order of when they first appear in the game:

A.) Lady Hilda
B.) Garland
C.) Freya
D.) Kuja

11-04-2006, 04:59 AM
I'll give this another go.

C, D, A, B

11-04-2006, 05:16 AM
Nope, sorry, but that isn't it, Enya. You'll have to wait till the next Fastest Finger.

11-04-2006, 05:42 AM
<font color="red">Correct</font>

Electric Shock definitely isn't one of the Dynes. Well, you're playing for 1000 gil now and if you get this, you can't leave with less than that. So let's see the question...

Hmm --- it's another visual clue. Let's take a look...

What FMV is this picture from? Is that from:

A.) Black Waltz and the Airship
B.) Entering Memoria
C.) Entering Lindblum
D.) Airship Takes Off From Dali

Oh, and it looks like we're back on track now in this thread, as far as posting order.

11-05-2006, 01:47 PM
I have actually been a bit stumped on this one. But im gonna go with my initial feelings on this one and say C: Entering Lindblum

11-05-2006, 02:22 PM
Ouch.. Abit too late.
I wanna answer C too.

11-05-2006, 02:28 PM
Cloud87, you do know the rules right? You can't post answers to questions unless you're in the hotseat. When Xander's game ends you can enter by answering a fastest finger question.

11-05-2006, 02:50 PM
Oh! I'm sorry.
I'm new here.

11-05-2006, 04:55 PM
Cloud87 --- being new isn't an excuse for not reading through the thread carefully. Especially when you're looking at a thread for a game like this and understanding the rules properly could be absolutely critical to the proper functioning of the game. Anyways...

<font color="red">Correct</font>

This image is indeed from the Entering Lindblum FMV. Well, congratulations, Xander. You've reached the 1,000 gil level, which means you can't leave with less than that. You're playing now for 2,000 gil and you're just ten questions away from a cool 1,000,000 gil. You still have all three original lifelines and it won't be all that long now until some of the new lifelines start kickng in. So, for 2000 gil...

Which of the following is not an ATE (Active Time Event) in this game? Is it:

A.) Clowns on a Dark Night
B.) Dagger Tries Harder
C.) Don't Hate Me
D.) Quina's Confusion

11-06-2006, 05:54 AM
I think I know what the answer is. But I wanna be safe and say Ask the Audience please. Just to make sure. I know im on a low amount but oh well.

11-06-2006, 06:09 AM
Okay, certainly. Ask the Audience is now open. Audience, using your keyboards, please lock in either A, B, C or D. Please lock in only A, B, C or D and do not provide any explanation or anything with your post. Do so and you will be disqualified from competing in the future. People need to follow the rules on this. And though I know I can't enforce it, I'm asking that you not consult any sources other than your own knowledge.

Xander, Ask the Audience will be open for 24 hours. You may answer at any time during that period if you're happy with the response so far. You should also consider the time that the people voting have been on the Shrine and your perception of their knowledge of the game.

Those who have recently asked me to be on the Expert's Panel, please do not answer. Those who were on the previous Expert's Panel up until now, thank you for serving on the Panel. You are now released for the time being, although you're welcome to possibly be on it again sometime in the future.

11-06-2006, 12:51 PM
I'm pretty sure it's a) Clowns on a Dark Night.

11-06-2006, 02:39 PM
I'm pretty sure its A, although im slightly unsure about D

Mr Jack
11-06-2006, 03:05 PM
im certain its D

11-07-2006, 02:32 AM

11-07-2006, 03:43 AM
Alright Joey and Enya know their stuff and I thought the same. Just wanted to be certain.

So yeah my answer is A:Clowns on a dark night

11-07-2006, 05:41 AM
<font color="red">Wrong</font>

Oh, man, that's really a shame. But it just goes to show that even the audience can get it wrong sometimes. The correct answer was D.) Quina's Confusion, which at least a couple of audience members suggested.

Clowns on a Dark Night involves Zorn and Thorn. It plays on Disc 3 --- Zorn: "No one is here!" Thorn: "Is no one here, really?" Zorn: "Yes!" Thorn: "Sure, you are about that?" Zorn: "That is enough!" Thorn: "Now, we do what?" Zorn : "We are going to ask Princess Garnet if we can return to the castle."

I believe this ATE may have been the inspiration for the title of the soundtrack piece Jesters of the Moonless Sky.

Dagger Tries Harder plays when Dagger is trying to learn about country ways of speaking and Don't Hate Me plays in Cleyra and involves Vivi.

Quina's Confusion I just made up, sorry.

Well, Xander, you leave with 1000 gil and my thanks.

Now, for those that would like to join in the game, it's time for our next Fastest Finger question. It's another about the captions that appear on the opening pictures for the characters on the demo sequence. Place these characters in alphabetical order by the first letter of their caption, starting with the earliest:

A.) Zidane

D.) Vivi
